Irony of Life


What an Irony of life
that applies to all
under the sun
from which no one can run

As a child
You have plenty of time and energy
But no money!

As an adult
You have plenty of money and energy
But no time!

As you grow old
You have plenty of time and money
But no energy!

So its better to act wise now
And welcome every morning with a 'wow'
Fully utilise your present
And rejoice every moment

This is the thumb rule
Just play it cool!

    I think I am the exception to the rule - Now that I am old, I have time, a good amount of energy, but I still have no money. But I accept it, and use my energy to do what makes me happy - gardening, visiting family, and of course, writing poems. I like your poem very much, good job. (Report) Reply
